Yup as sosofm said
Change your motherboard to an AM3+ socket
Down ur powersupply to save some $$$
spend extra $$$ on video card.

Back off the water cooling and get an even better video card.
Get a midtower case and you can approach a top of the line AMD video card.

like delroymonjo said, cut the water cooling and stick with air.
imo the 955 is better for gaming because the 965 take up a lot more power than it
which will be better for overclocking.
